    Change your new app memory location to internal. Look under settings then storage, scroll down. You will be all good.

    Go into storage and tap on sd card scroll down to the app that needs moving and tap that app, it gives you the option to move to device. Then once it is moved check for updates again and they should go.

    Nah doesn't work, even after a soft reset or removing the SD completely

    Well, that's odd. I have a 1520 too and changing storage was the way to go. Then, since you removed the SD, just uninstall and reinstall the app.

    I found the problem guys :)

    these apps were installed on my sd card from earlier versions before the update, this update made it mandatory for these apps to be installed on the device instead, so when it tried to "update" the apps on the device, there weren't there to be updated. I had to go into the storage settings and move the apps from my sd to internal storage, and now they are updated!

    thanks guys!
